    Faith & Society: Continuing the Conversation with Millenials

    in Religion

    This program was recorded before a live studio audience in the Carlton Union Building at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we continue our conversation with the students of Stetson about faith and the relevance of religion for the Millennial generation in the 21st century.


    It seems every religious group has its fundamentalists.  So, are religious people particularly prone to fundamentalism?  Or, is it just part of some people’s personality? And how about religion and politics?  Is there a line between faith and political involvement? Can we honor both our religious values and our responsibilities as a member of a diverse nation, at the same time?


    The topics for this program were selected by students at Stetson University. We’ll get into these difficult issues of fundamentalism and religion and politics from a faith perspective with the students.  Their questions, and our conversation with them is the content of this program.

    Faith & Culture: Religion and Millenials in the 21st Century

    in Religion

    This program was recorded before a live studio audience in the Carlton Union Building at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we have a conversation with the students of Stetson about faith and the relevance of religion for the Millennial generation in the 21st century. (This episode is presented here with permission.)


    The Pew Research Center says: "By some key measures, Americans ages 18 to 29 are considerably less religious than older Americans. Fewer young adults belong to any particular faith community compared to older people today. Also they’re less likely to be religiously affiliated than their parents’ and grandparents’ were, when younger. Fully one fourth of the Millennial generation are unaffiliated with any particular faith group. And more young people say that religion 'isn’t very important in their lives' compared to the elder generation."


    The topics for this program were selected by students at Stetson University. These young adults have some “significant” questions for us around the issues of inclusion regarding faith communities and religious authority.

    IT Life Radio: Working with Millennials

    in Technology

    Welcome to the inaugural episode of IT Life Radio. IT Life is dedicated to all things that matter to IT professionals including career advice, management issues, gaming, new technology and "geek lifestyle." Every Wednesday at 3PM ET we'll have a special guest to talk about one of these topics.


    If you believe the hype, millennials are whiny, entitled, social media addicts that can't make a decision without including a group of a thousand. And when they do, they expect a participation trophy for doing it. They are also 53 percent of the workforce so like it or not, you're going to have to deal with them.


    Bill Grady, IBM Brand Strategist, says you should like it. According to IBM's study, "Myths, Exaggerations, and Uncomfortable Truths" Millennials aren't all that different from the rest of us. The study goes into the habits and beliefs of all the generations in the workplace and we're more alike than we sometimes like to admit.


    Grady will help us:



    Sort fact from fiction about Millennials in the workplace.
    How to integrate them into your workplace
    How to be a better manager (or co-worker) regardless of generation.


    Bill Grady is Brand Strategist, IBM Corporate Headquarters. Bill is an award-winning designer and inventor with nine US patents issued and pending. He is currently focused on establishing IBM Watson as an essential worldwide brand. Bill lives in New York City, where he is an MBA candidate in the class of 2016 at NYU.

    Survive 21st Century: Think Like Millenials

    in News

    I get accused of many things. My liberal friends think I am a right wing wacko hard core capitalist.  My right-wing friends think I am a socialist Communist bleeding heart.


    Others think I am a wishy-washy independent playing both sides.


    If you really want to categorize me, then I guess you could call me a social liberal and a fiscal conservative. But that is way too broad.


    I think of myself – without modesty -- as forward thinking. I see myself as thinking like a millennial with the experience of a baby boomer.


    That’s why I see problems differently from most Americans.  Too many of us think we are a Republican or Democrat. The problem is Democrats and Republicans are on the same side.


    Both political parties -- and their elected officials -- are working together -- against you the American taxpayer. And they win every single time.


    The best example is the Congressional committees on the IRS and Benghazi. I'm not saying that something isn’t wrong in what those investigations are trying to look into.  But go back over the last two decades and look at all the other congressional investigations. The Democrats did the same thing when they were in power. Think of all the investigations of corruption by the GOP and the Bush administration that was alleged by Democrats.


    Think of what the GOP did against Clinton with Whitewater and Vince Foster’s death – and Monica Lewinsky.


    What was the purpose?  Campaign tactics. And what's the end result.  Taxpayer money spent and no real answers at all.  


    In fact, when you look at the campaign-finance laws, you realize they work hand-in-glove with these congressional investigations.  They raise money for candidates and special interests.


    And most of us in America fall into this game of either siding with the Democrats or the Republicans.

    The Millenials ~ A Special Generation

    in Spirituality

    Children born in an era when three major outer planets formed what's called a stellium in astrology have grown up under the most unusual circumstances.  Framed around a cluster of planets, all in close proximity, the millenials have grown up in a world far different than many of their baby-boom parents.  A stellium is a close alignmeent of three or more planets in the same zodiacal proximity.  In the case of these millenials, the three planets were Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune which were all located in the middle degrees of Capricorn, a place in the grand wheel that is being triggered by the current position of Pluto.  This has presented this generation with a much different picture of daily reality than many a generation has had to face.  Saturn represnts responsbility, Uranus harkens rebellion, and Neptune provides a shroud of fog that clouds the view dramatically.  Disillusionment, harsh reality, and a dream that has yet to appear.  This has become the cross this generation bears.  Listen as I speak with one of the world's most respected astrologers on this topic.  Donna Cunningham writes of this topic with an honest, empathetic eye and sheds insights on what will become of this generation.  Listen and learn.  Do you have a millenial under your roof?

    Pastors as globetrotters...In the Modern Church...What is Ministry?

    in Lifestyle

    Many have "gone in" on Dr. Creflo Dollar. Dollar is the Atlanta based megachurch pastor, who recently released a plea to his supporters to assist him in purchasing a new jet to continue his work of global ministry. The web has been inundated with questions like, "If Jesus could travel on a donkey, why can't he?" "Why can't he more like the Pope?" and "Why doesn't he help his neighborhood in Atlanta more?" 


    For those who go deeper than the headlines or are a member of this pastor and other successful ministries worldwide, they know that there is largely a measurable difference in the lives of people who adhere to the principles taught. Unfortunately, with 74% of millenials belief that they can either "Find God Elsewhere" or that "Its not relevant to me", they don't have the personal experience to relate to. They simply have CBS, the blogs and the watercooler. 


    On this episode, we will talk to Vic Bolton. Seasoned PR professional and devout Christian. He will help us give a unique perspective on this issue of judgement of the success of megachurches in the modern era of extreme secularism.


    Be warned....don't expect a sermon. Vic is known for keeping it real.
